Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom Season 1 Series Review

Lots of cute guys, historical setting, swords, and a girl disguised as a boy in the middle of it all. Where have I seen that before? Review: This review is going to be a bit difficult to write. Mostly because this anime is fine and I actually think a lot of viewers will really enjoy … Continue reading Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom Season 1 Series Review

Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 7: Oh No, Not Everyone is Nice

After an encounter with one of the guy's obsessed with black feathers, Kuze is forced to deal with the reality that there is a traitor in their midst. Then again, this anime has a plot aimed at the Prime Minister of Japan and yet can't stay focused on that for three seconds because there's so … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 7: Oh No, Not Everyone is Nice

Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 6: Tragic Back Story Time

Fairly standard plot development for this kind of anime. Focus on one guy and show us why he's all damaged, have the heroine 'rescue' him and suddenly he's all hers. This episode focuses on Hisui, though I'm not sure why given he's probably been the least interesting character to date. And they decide to look … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 6: Tragic Back Story Time

Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 2 – 5: Pretty Standard Harem, Poor Mystery

Having dropped SAO Alternative: GGO I decided to review this anime episode to episode. While it isn't amazing, it has so far kept me more interested than Alternative and there's definitely some potential here even if my hopes aren't overly high. Episode 2: A perfectly average second episode with  the full array of pretty boys … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari Episodes 2 – 5: Pretty Standard Harem, Poor Mystery

Libra of Nil Admirari First Impressions

Was I really in the market for another historical reverse harem? I'm still not sure about that, but here are my first impressions of Libra of Nil Admirari or Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan or whatever else you want to call this. In a historical setting we have a girl who is being … Continue reading Libra of Nil Admirari First Impressions

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Series Review: Nowhere Near As Impressive As The Amount Of Punctuation in the Title Suggests

Overview: Set in the Victorian era, Cardia is alone in a tower when the military come for her. She's then kidnapped by a thief. Turns out she has some weird poison in her that burns pretty much everything and there's some terrorist plot to destroy London and then the world. However this is based on … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Series Review: Nowhere Near As Impressive As The Amount Of Punctuation in the Title Suggests

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 12: A Neat Package

Review: I know I complain when things don't resolve, but this was a very neat conclusion. Finis, father, Cardia's poison, her relationship with Lupin, everything tied up in a pretty little bow. I guess that's kind of been this show from start to finish though. It just kind of did its thing never particularly well … Continue reading Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 12: A Neat Package

Sengoku Night Blood Episode 11: Once a Damsel in Distress

Review: I think what continues to bug me the most about this show is there is actually an interesting premise here, buried underneath the inane chatter that clutters most of the screen time. This alternative view of the warring states could have been interesting if the show had cared to actually examine it or even … Continue reading Sengoku Night Blood Episode 11: Once a Damsel in Distress

Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 11: Save Cardia, Save the World

Review: The race is on for Lupin and co to rush off and save Cardia off of Nemo's Nautilus. That sounds a lot more dramatic than this episode actually is, but it kind of speaks for this show. It remains very careful as it steps through all the necessary parts of a story including this … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 11: Save Cardia, Save the World

Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 9: Rallying the Troops

Review: Right, so we still don't actually know what Code Realize is, other than a plot to destroy the world for reasons unknown. And we still don't know what Idea is actually up to or what they think the 'correct' course is for humanity, other than they think killing Cardia is a step in the … Continue reading Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ Episode 9: Rallying the Troops
